Miranda Lambert Performs ‘Mama’s Broken Heart,’ ‘Little Red Wagon’ at 2015 ACM Awards [WATCH]
"Little Red Wagon" flashed behind Lambert as she rocked the stage, clad in a strapless and sexy red shirt, black pants and cowboy boots.
"Little Red Wagon," from Lambert's latest Platinum album, was written by Audra Mae and Joe Ginsbert and was included on Mae's 2012 Audra Mae & the Almighty Sound album, but Lambert immediately laid claim to it for herself.
“When I heard it, I thought, ‘Oh god. This girl is ridiculous,’” Lambert recalls. “So I stalked her down. We’re the same age, and she’s from Oklahoma. I asked her point blank: ‘What’s your plan for "Little Red Wagon"? Can I cut it? Can I even try to be a hair on the a– of how you did it?’”
The network bleeped out part of the song's lyrics, which say, "And I've got long, blonde hair / And I play guitar, and I go on the road / And I do all the s--t you wanna do / And my dog does tricks / And I ain't about drama, ya'll / And I love my apron / But I ain't your mama."
Lambert is the most-nominated artist of the evening, with eight nods, including the night's highest honor, Entertainer of the Year. Following her performance, she was given the 50th Anniversary Milestone Award, an honor she shares with George Strait, Garth Brooks and Taylor Swift, among others.
